DUMBBELL EXTERNAL ROTATION ON GYM BALL

Weak and painful shoulders are one of the most common problems seen in the clinic on a weekly basis. Not only rotator cuff issues due to tendinopathy and tears, but also other shoulder conditions like an arthritic shoulder, a frozen shoulder, and an unstable shoulder.The video below demonstrates one of my favourite shoulder strength exercises.It targets external rotation weakness mainly the rotator cuff.[embed]https://www.facebook.com/physioperformancedrogheda/videos/1283253668354693/[/embed]

Shoulder Problems & the Balloon

The majority of clients who suffer from repeated shoulder instability incidents (like popping in & out of the joint) or have had actual shoulder stabilisation surgery are bad breathers and this pattern contributes massively to failed rehab programmes.Sometimes purely focusing on strength, mobility and posture is not enough. Breathing patterns can influence our bodies movement.
A 10 second exercise is no match for 23,000 bad breaths a day!!!!!One of the most important aspects for these clients is to teach their rib-cage to mo

BACK PAIN: Don’t Move,Keep the Back Straight, Don’t Bend???

NO NO NO NO!!!!Although these actions & thoughts might seem like the natural things to do to help ease your back pain, this is not actually the case!!!!!

This is similar to limping after spraining your ankle, and generally resolves as the pain settles. While initially hard, getting back doing valued activities which are pai

SQUAT: AND DON’TE AFRAID OF HURTING YOUR BACK

Without doubt squatting is one of the best exercises an athlete can perform for any discipline but “How we Squat” is a very touchy subject in the fitness industry.In my opinion “Form” is King and the weight and depth of squat are secondary. By all means these can and should be developed but only after the athlete is competent in the movement. Too often being able to perform a movement with a heavy load is regarded as been strong and competent regardless of how it was achieved. The flipside of that is repetitive bodyweight hi
